I'm presently in progress to change my rear end
A new rim in stainless steel (5,5x18) is ordered and on the way. Will use the OEM hub, but powdercoat it and will go for black spokes. Rim will stay polished stainless steel (same set up I made for the front wheel, see attached picture).
Discussed on several occasions already which tire to use
I know that in regard to available space and so on the 200 is not a problem, providing I will "clean" the fender from inside, because the only "real" critical point is the wiring for the turnsignals.
Before I'm going to order the tire now, I would like to make a last check on the look
Certainly everybody says the wider the better, but since I go with the Dyna OEM (but shortened) fender, same as the Dyna chopped fender (no tail light/plate etc), I'm still wondering a bit, how the rear tire will blend in, in regard to the profile (overall look from the side)
With the OEM fender the bike is slightly old school. That is a bit different from a radical cut rear end, where definetely wider is much
better than small. If I would go for e.g. a pintail seat, a 200, or even more botoxed
is for sure the solution.
Long story short => any pix available with a 180/55 (18 inch!!) on a DYNA with OEM fender? Pics of beautifull mods with 200x18, I saw on RIC's very clean bikes
. Somehow I'm afraid that the 200 rear tire comes across a little bit to racy
(on my bike), due to the low profile. Don't know how the 180/55 does look.
Thanks for some opinions and pictures
